Super-8 Blaxploitation Movie Madness at Subversion this Friday Night!

5 December 2011 8:30 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Attention all you Jive-ass Cornpone Peckerwoods!….Blood Kwanzaa is this Friday night!

Gabriel “Skuzzy” Zolman is a St. Louis promoter, DJ, writer, performance artist, and movie nut who produces and hosts a monthly show at the downtown nightclub The Crack Fox. He calls his show Subversion and describes it as a “post-industrial variety show”. Subversion features music, magic, comedy, burlesque dancers, and more and every month he has a different theme. One month the theme was Ed Wood and he recreated, on stage, some dance numbers from Orgy Of The Dead. He once dove into a box of hypodermic needles to recreate a scene from Saw 2. Needless to say, Mr. Zolman is devoted to his art (or just nuts)!

This Friday (December 9th) the Subversion show is called Blood Kwanzaa and it’s got a Blaxploitation theme! Of course you can’t have a Blaxploitation-themed show without Pam Grier so »

Cee-Lo announces new Goodie Mob album

27 July 2011 5:30 AM, PDT | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

The Soul Machine himself, Cee-Lo Green, has announced that his old group, Goodie Mob, is reforming for a new album, supposedly due this fall. Goodie Mob were part of the Dungeon Family, a collection of Atlanta-based rappers that put Hot 'Lanta on the map in the 1990s with albums like Soul Food and OutKast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. The Mob, so named because "the Good Die Mostly Over Bullshit," according to their track "Fighting," had something of a slump after Cee-Lo left suddenly in the middle of production for their 1999 album World Party. They were dropped from Arista Records shortly afterwards and haven't recorded an album since 2005's Livin' Life as Lumberjacks. But Cee-Lo recently took to Twitter to announce the release of a new album, We Sell Drugs Too, apparently scheduled for release this fall.  It took a while, but it's shaping up to [...] »

Peter Buckley, The Worst Boxer Of All Time, Gets His Own Movie From The Director Of 'Soul Food'

19 July 2011 9:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director George Tillman Jr. has had quite an interesting career in Hollywood so far. After the release of his feature directorial debut "Soul Food," Tillman used the clout garnered from the surprise financial success of that film, and unselfishly threw it behind several other productions like "Barbershop" and the "Soul Food" television series (take that Tyler Perry). As for his directing career, that is an entirely different matter. After adapting two true life stories into decent films with 2000's "Men of Honor" and 2009's "Notorious," Tillman directed the confused and frankly awful revenge picture "Faster," which found itself spinning its… »
